Qatar Hair & Beauty Industry Network first organisation in Middle East to become section member of Cidesco International

The general assembly of the Comite International d'Esthetique et de Cosmetology (Cidesco) voted and approved, at its 72nd meeting held last month, the membership of the Qatar Hair & Beauty Industry Network during Cidesco’s 66th World Congress & Exhibition in Stockholm.

Cidesco aims to establish scientific and practical principles for the cosmetic industry through the development of educational and training curricula and certification according to international standards.

The majority of 32 participating Cidesco sections, representing different countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Australasia, discussed and approved the Qatar network's proposal, according to a press statement issued in Doha by Nama – Social Development Centre.

The involvement of Qatar through membership to the international organisation enhances the contribution of the Qatar network and its feedback to Cidesco, the statement notes.

“The establishment of the network aims to support the cosmetic industry and develop the cosmetic industry standards in Qatar.

“It also aims at exchanging skills and scientific knowledge of professionals, developing the health and safety criteria, in addition to professional ethics, upgrading national curricula and representing Qatar in the field of education and vocational training at Cidesco.”

The Qatar International Beauty Academy (Tajmeel) is the only international vocational training academy in the Middle East.

Owned by Nama and accredited to deliver programmes and award Cidesco’s various qualifications, it set up the network in 2013 to connect all salon owners, health and beauty professionals.

The Qatar network’s membership includes 30 salons and spa owners, 12 Cidesco graduates and one training academy, with hopes to achieve a 30% annual increase in members, the statement adds.

“Undoubtedly, Qatar’s interest in the network development and success to connect it as a global platform with Cidesco section members representing 38 countries around the world marks a new phase in which Nama seeks to develop standards of excellence in the field.”
